Dib on Track After Mayweather/50 Cent Legal Tussle

IBF featherweight champion Billy Dib has been caught in the middle of a nasty feud between Floyd Mayweather and rapper 50 Cent,– who will now oversee Dib'’s boxing and prospective acting career after legal threats.

Former best friends Mayweather and 50 Cent sent the Twitter world into a spin Friday night by flinging various insults and threats at each other. 50 Cent had set up a promotional company called TMT [The Money Team] Promotions while the boxing superstar was in jail and soon after the rapper signed Dib. When 50 Cent started TMT, he was under the belief that Mayweather would be a part of the company.

The pair fell out soon after Mayweather was released, and Dib (35-1, 21KO) then signed exclusively with Mayweather.

However, 50 Cent would not release Dib from his initial three-year contract and after lawyers got involved, Mayweather pulled his four-year offer.

Now Dib’s career is under the control of 50 Cent, who has plans to make the boxer a main event drawcard in events in the Middle East, Australia and the United States, where the 27-year-old will next defend his title on December 1 on the Miguel Cotto vs Austin Trout undercard in New York.

“I definitely feel my career is very secure, I feel I’ve made the right choice. I have signed with 50 and he made certain promises. At the end of the day, he has to fulfill those promises because we’ve got a signed contract, so we will be financially looked after," Dib said.

“He has a working relationship with numerous promoters. I am fighting on the Cotto card against an undefeated guy, Jayson Velez (19-0, 14KO), it will be a hard fight but I’m back on the big stage. We have spoken about fighting in Dubai, where 50 has a huge following. I am the only Arab Muslim world champion in the world today, so that’s got to count for something over there."

Dib sides with 50's claim of having more money than Mayweather. According a list generated by Forbes Magazine for 2012, Mayweather has a higher estimated worth with $115 million, but 50 Cent came in a shade lower at $110 million.

“He really does have more money than Floyd," Dib said.

Dib is right. 50 cent has more money than Money Mayweather. Floyd can't even put half of the money on TMT. Mayweather's worth is all based on lies.

I don't care who he claims his caretaker to be, just as long as his career is looked after.

[QUOTE=Deevel916]How is it that 50 cent comes out of nowhere and "bam" becomes a promoter, yet Floyd has been trying to get his promoters license for over 2yrs with no luck?[/QUOTE] Floyd is very dependent on Haymon and GBP. He's useless on his own.

Not sure why people thinks it's not real just because they arguing about money, keep in mind both of them had no money growing up and so now that they both do its what they only talk about... Also unfortunately "they" always resort to the "I have more money that you" argument... I went to a hig...
